FROM a field of 27 keen women, the team of Kate McCormick, Linda Boylan and Gloria Lennon claimed the honours in the popular stableford medley at the Mount Gambier Golf Club last week.

The day included a mixture of cold and rain, resulting in heavy conditions underfoot.

McCormick, Boylan and Lennon finished with a score of 75 points, from consistent splits of 37/38.

Included in their score were three eight-pointers which contributed to their win.

Second place went to the combination of Carol Davis, Libby Altschwager and Janina Morrision, who registered 71 points (37/34).

Altschwager was in fine form, contributing 35 points herself.

On a count-back, third place went to Lyndal McInerney, Rosalie Hunt and Sharran Waters with 70 points (34/36).

Only three balls were handed out in the run-down, with Andrea Pegler, Mary Kentish and Helen McIntyre claiming one each.

A speciality prize for the pro shot on the par 3 eighth hole went to Di Norman, while the second shot on the difficult par 3 10th hole went to A Grade’s Davis, B Grade’s McCormick and C Grade’s Maxine McGregor.

Coming up on July 6, in conjunction with the stroke round monthly medal will be the fourth round of the International Bowl, the fourth round of the handicap championship and putting competitions.

Meanwhile only seven women competed in the stableford round played last Saturday on a cold day.

Playing off 22, Di O’Donnell claimed the honours with 26 points from splits of 12/14.

A count-back was required for second place, which went to Gemma Winterborn also on 26 points (14/12).

Club stalwart Heather Chapman rounded out the podium with 25 points.
